Dear Chad,

I just get the following logs while troubleshooting with tcpdump.

local nameserver IP: 202.102.5.100
network PC IP: 202.102.5.50

When I do a nslookup of yahoo and google from network PC using the
local caching nameserver, I only get this on the caching nameserver.

13:23:58.707604 IP 202.102.5.50.44778 > 202.102.5.100.53:  56955+ A?
google.com. (28)
13:23:32.899379 IP 202.102.5.50.40229 > 202.102.5.100.53:  47636+ A?
yahoo.com. (27)


Note: Please note that the above Static IPs are just arbitrary values.

Can you please shed some light on this issue?

Tek,

Can you please post your Bind configuration files?

Have you done a tcpdump or wireshark capture on both machines while issuing
the resolution request? Could you please do that as well and post the
results?

Chad
